If you are thinking of sending jewellery by courier then our reliable line up of courier companies will be able to handle the collection and delivery of your items. However, we do have a limit in terms of the value of item we are willing to offer protection cover up to and that is £250.
As one of the most popular items sold on eBay, low-value jewellery is often sent using our delivery services. Whether you need items you have sold online need to sent in the UK and delivered the next working day, or you have new customers to reach overseas, we can help you find a trustworthy and affordable courier. The couriers we offer provide the secure kind of delivery that jewellery requires, plus our courier services are all trackable so that you and the recipient can follow the parcels movements until it arrives.
The whole purpose of Parcel Monkey is to make arranging a courier simple. Just compare, book and send. All you need to think about is how quickly you would like the parcel to arrive and how much you are willing to pay. When you buy most jewellery it'll have its sturdy presentation box, we'd recommend that you package it in that, as well as a great deal of another packaging to secure it in transit.
Follow the simple guidance above in terms of getting a quote, the only difference will be you will need to provide Customs Documents if sending out of the EU, so have a read of our Customs Advice which states the need to provide a detailed description of your parcel contents and to attach customs documents to the outside of the parcel. It's also essential, that if you're sending jewellery abroad that you're aware of the customs rules of the inbound country as they may charge duty on your jewellery or they may even completely exclude the importation of any jewellery into their country.
Please note all items when sent abroad are done so with the Duty Unpaid (DDU) so be sure to inform the recipient any duty owed will need to be paid by them, so it is also imperative to provide a correct and working local contact number or email address so Customs can reach them.
Often jewellery isn't the largest or most bulky of items sent through our network of parcel delivery companies, and hence the price to ship them within the UK, across Europe or even around the world often is very small compared to the value of the item being sent. Often the issue is that jewellery can be very expensive and the risks to both us and our partners can be excessive. Hence, any item valued at over £250 may be carried on a no-compensation basis.
Quite often earrings, necklaces, watches, beads, bangles, charms, wedding rings, cufflinks and pendants will be valued at under £250. However, you might have expensive watches such as Breitling, Rolex, Tag Heuer and the like are most likely to be over the £250 limit. Furthermore, diamond wedding and engagement rings are also expected to be in excess of our limit. But cheap jewellery sold by many retailers are unlikely to reach that limit.
If you are sending personal belongings or gifts, then be sure to list all the items in the box in order to avoid any delays in Customs.
